Best No Knead Baguette

Be the first to review
READY IN: 1hr 10mins

I got this off of the internet and so I thought I'd try it. I have not made it as of yet, but plan to within the week. With just the two of us, a loaf can last a few days. I love the feel and smell of a good yeast dough, but for busy days, this comes in handy. Hope you'll give it a try and let me know what you think of it. Times don't include 2 hour rise time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water.
  2. Add sugar, salt, shortening, and 1 cup warm water; stir until dissolved.
  3. Add flour and stir until smooth.(you may knead, but it's not necessary).
  4. Cover and let rise in a draft-free, warm place for an hour or until doubled.
  5. Turn onto floured surface. Divide in half; let rest for 5 minutes.
  6. Roll each half into a 10"x8" rectangle. Roll up from the long side; pinch along seam edges to seal.
  7. Place seam side down on oiled baking sheets sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover and let rise again until doubled, approximately 45 minutes.
  8. With a very sharp knife, make 5 diagonal cuts across the top of each loaf.
  9. Bake as directed or until lightly browned.
  10. Cool on wire racks.
